New Delhi, Dec 4 (PTI) Sudipto Sen, the lone Indian in the jury board of the just-concluded International Film Festival of India, maintained that the remarks made by Israeli filmmaker Nadav Lapid about "The Kashmir Files" were his personal opinion even as three other co-jurors came out in support of the jury head.

Sen's assertion on Saturday came after three members -- American producer Jinko Gotoh, French film editor Pascale Chavance and French documentary filmmaker Javier Angulo Barturen -- released a statement on Twitter endorsing Lapid's comments that caused a huge controversy earlier this week.

The account from which Gotoh posted the statement is unverified. Sen's name is also not mentioned in it.
